-Kernel building-

But if you want to try building your own kernel.... ;>))

Make sure the above all works first, then try the following:

git clone git://

then cd to the /kernel-omap4 dir and do:

git checkout -b experimental remotes/origin/L24.9
make ARCH=arm omap4_panda_defconfig
make ARCH=arm menuconfig

Import an alternate config from config.kernel as it has somewhat different parameters that the panda defconfig which you will need.

edit a file so as to have some uncomitted changes ie. the git archive needs to be "dirty" This is because the sdio.ko and tiwlan_drv.ko were compiled with a kernel with "version magic" of '2.6.35-g6d019da-dirty SMP preempt mod_unload ARMv7' and if that ain't it the modules won't load.

make -j10 ARCH=arm CROSS_COMPILE=/path_to_your/buildroot-2010.11/output/staging/usr/bin/arm-linux- uImage

You might want to change the -j10 to suite your CPU's capability.

Put the uImage on your vfat partion in place of the kernel from the validation image

boot up and login in as root with no password.

try out again it should work as it did with the validation image kernel.
